How to Bet on Horses Online with Bitcoin

Anyone looking to bet on horses online with Bitcoin will find the process to be an exceptionally simple one.

Don’t forget, you’ll receive our fantastic welcome bonus when making your first deposit, which can be worth up to 5 BTC!

Simply click on the race you’re interested in and then choose your horse. It’s then a case of choosing how much to bet and confirming everything. That’s then it – unless you want to create a parlay, in which case you can keep on adding selections until you’re happy.

The ultimate goal of every bet is to win you some money, and if you manage to scoop a prize the money will be paid to you automatically. It’s then simple to withdraw your money using a range of different cryptocurrencies. Of course, you could always place another bet instead!

 At Cloudbet, we offer two main options for horse racing betting fans. You can either simply predict the winner of a race or you can place a parlay bet. Both are explained below.


This one is pretty self-explanatory, as you’re trying to predict the winner of the race. You’ll find that the odds fluctuate all the way up to the start of the race, and you need to time your bet perfectly to get the best possible odds. As you might expect, the lower the chances are of a horse winning, the higher its odds will be.


A parlay is two or more individual selections rolled into one bet. You will then only win if all the selections are correct ones. The more races you add into a parlay, the higher the odds become. Place a parlay on a few races and you could find yourself scooping a huge prize, especially considering we have some of the highest limits around.

If one of these betting options sounds good to you, create a Cloudbet account today and take advantage of the fantastic odds offered on every race!

Horse racing is one of the most popular sports in the world, and races are held pretty much every day. This means that there’s an almost constant supply of horse racing betting options. However, many prefer to only bet on the more prestigious races, and we’ve got information on five huge races below.

  • Grand National. Held every February at Aintree in Liverpool, UK, this is perhaps the most famous steeplechase in the world. It features jumps that are typically higher than those found elsewhere, and it’s not unusual for unfavoured horses to cross the line first.
  • Kentucky Derby. Held on the first Saturday of May, this flat race is the first, and most famous, leg of the American Triple Crown, which also includes the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.
  • Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. This is a turf flat race held annually at Longchamp in France, usually on the first Sunday in October. It has a huge prize pool worth $5 million, which is bigger than the prize pool at any other European race.
  • Melbourne Cup. The Melbourne Cup is the most famous horse race in Australia. It’s held at the beginning of November at the Victoria Racing Club and is the world’s most valuable “two mile” handicap.
  • Epsom Derby. This is a flat race held at Epsom Downs Racecourse in the UK, first run back in 1780. It is part of British racing’s Triple Crown and is also the most prestigious race in the British Classics.

If you fancy betting on any of the above races, or any other major race from around the world, you’ll find fantastic odds right here at Cloudbet. So, sign up and bet on horse racing here today!
